...a recalibration of the entire system, an additional cost.”
How does this impact the collision repair industry?
“As connected, automated and autonomous and smart cars rapidly increase, so does the demand for knowledgeable leaders, certified and credentialed employees, and skilled workers with access to the latest information, since new technologies are being released every day,” Farnsworth said. “Collisions are projected to reduce, but the cost to repair will increase. The repair process will include the need to recalibrate sensors, which requires consistent up to date information on new technologies and real-world experience to stay relevant.”
Before ending with a Q&A session, Farnsworth encouraged attendees to “Get involved! Find out about the latest technologies available and where you can receive training. There are so many opportunities in this field, and we need to understand the various issues happening as we connect vehicles with 5G and satellites. Discover a new passion that will lead you into the new future of transportation.”
